Time for change

Postby i_luv_pizza » Sun Jul 23, 2006 10:38 pm

Hi all,

I’m a new member here and over the last week I have been reading your threads and feel that you provide the right environment and support here for those in need.

I am so impressed that I have made this my home page.

A bit about me:

I'm 36 male married with 2 children (5, 3), I live in North Rocks in Sydney and I’m fat and very very unhealthy.

I love to eat & I hate exercise.

I have tried dieting before but the food temptation has just been too great.

This time (lol) is the last time.

I started this diet 7 days ago and at this stage I have not yet gotten serious, I am eating healthier and I have lost 6kg but I have not yet got a plan or a goal.

I thing that having a plan and a goal are essential if I am not to fail.

Tonight I went through some old photos, I came across 2 which I removed from the album that I will use as motivation, the photos where taken in February 1997 a week before my wedding.

So tonight I set 2 goals:

1st) my sister is getting married in November this year, my goal is to get under 100kg

2nd) My tenth wedding anniversary is in February next year, my goal is to get to the same weight I was when I was married and to put on the shirt I had on in that photo.

This week coming I plan to do my plan, outlining a schedule for exercise and diet.

This is going to be a tough experience, but I really have no choice.

Sounds like a plan. Good luck.

Good luck with the diet. The photographs are a good idea. I was just looking at one of myself taken in 2005. When I reach my target, I'll post a before and after on the forum.

photos really are the pits hey.

The first few weeks are the hardest. After that, habit should kick in. Try to find a method you enjoy or it will be hard to keep it going after you've got to your goal. For me, I discovered bicycling and badminton. Another friend loves swimming. Whatever you do, just do it consistently and you should get a result.

35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
